Ellie Martinez grew up in the Dominican Republic, having been raised in a country where going to the beauty salon once a week was the norm, she soon took notice of the art that is the beauty industry. While growing up she always envisioned herself working in the cosmetic world with makeup being her main focus. Taking any opportunity to share her vision, she would offer her beauty services throughout high school and help in school dances and activities dabbling in theatrical makeup as well. Having a tremendous curiosity for makeup she began to take online courses to expand her knowledge and took on a mentor while closely working with Dominican fashion blogger, LaPeccataMinuta, Ellie was recruited as a beauty team member for the Dominican Soberano Awards and assisted in red carpet and backstage makeup for celebrities and dance crew. Shortly after, Ellie decided she needed to experience more and moved to New York City, where she honed her craft as a beauty advisor for Laura Mercier and received her Makeup Certificate in Beauty and Fashion. In a wonderful coincidence she was able to meet Christian and become an important part of the Christian Zamora Studio Team.
